Coconut Oil as Makeup Remover

I use coconut oil to remove my eye makeup before washing my face every night.
The coconut oil never stings my eyes and it leaves my skin soft. 
Best of all: it removes all types of eyeliners, even the water-proof ones!

Do NOT use "Lou Ana" coconut oil that you can find in the baking aisle at Walmart!
That coconut oil is ok for your feet but not for your face. I've tried it and it broke me out BAD. I warned you.

Go to your local Asian or Indian food supermarket and get pure coconut oil. The only ingredient on the label = "coconut oil."
Unrefined (virgin) is best because it still has all the great nutrients for your skin (but refined is still fine to use on your hair).

I just dab a q-tip in some coconut oil and then gently swipe across my eyelid to remove my eyeliner & mascara.

A few long-lasting/water-proof eyeliners I like to use are Milani "Infinite" and Mac "LiquidLast"-
normally these take a lot of painful scrubbing to get off with normal makeup remover :-(
but since they're oil based = coconut oil works like a charm! EASY!

Other decent options for removing waterproof eyeliner & mascaras are- well basically anything "oil" haha :-) Baby oil (mineral oil) does the job but leaves my skin greasy. In emergencies I run to the kitchen and grab olive oil. Or if you're a hippie you might have apricot oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, or almond oil in your cupboard to try out... But I still prefer coconut oil!
